Nocturama (2016)

No matter what, violence is inherently cinematic. Filmmakers can make it horrific and traumatizing or they can make it ludicrous and comical, but the sheer kineticism of such acts cannot help but catch our eye. It goes right to that, “lizard brain” we hear so much about, and connects with us on a primal level. It’s the same sort of psychology that you hear about advertisers employing to make us want their their products. Do you think that ISIS and the Alt-Right have teleconferences to discuss branding? Somebody has to give the social media guy a set of guidelines to follow, right?
